Combine filling ingredients in 7- to 10-inch nonstick
omelet pan or skillet. Cook and stir over medium
heat until water has evaporated and vegetables are
crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from pan;
keep warm. Clean pan.
Beat eggs, ¼ cup water, cheese, basil and garlic
powder in medium bowl until blended. Heat butter
in same pan over medium-high heat until hot. Tilt
pan to coat bottom.
Pour in half of the egg mixture. Mixture should set
immediately at edges. Gently push cooked portions
from edges toward the center with inverted spatula
so that uncooked eggs can reach the hot pan surface. Continue cooking, tilting pan and gently moving cooked portions as needed.
1 cup raw oatmeal
½ cup Kirkland Signature™
1½ cups Kirkland Signature
8 frozen medium strawberries
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey
Place all of the ingredients in a blender and
purée until smooth. Makes 2 servings.
Lightly mist a medium nonstick skillet with olive oil
spray and place it over medium heat. Cook the onion
and bell pepper until the veggies are tender and the
excess liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes.
Lightly mist an 11 x 7-inch ovenproof glass or
ceramic baking dish with spray. Spread half of the
bread evenly in the dish to form a layer. Then
evenly layer half of the cheese, followed by half of
the onion mixture, then half of the ham. Repeat
with the remaining ingredients, making sure they
are evenly distributed all the way to the edges of
the dish and not mounded in the center. Set aside.
Combine the egg substitute, milk, mustard, black
pepper and salt in a large measuring cup or
medium bowl. Whisk until thoroughly mixed. Pour
the egg mixture over the bread, cheese, veggies
and ham. Use a fork to very gently press the ingredients into the liquid without mashing them. Cover
with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
